    Backing up

    Who backs up their system?

    How often do you do it?

    I'm finally able to back mine up with a DVD (I would use 14 CD's and not even be halfway through...now I'm on 1 DVD and 1/4 of the way through and still working).

    I dunno how often I should back it up though...I don't download a lot, but when I do I freak if I ever even ALMOST lose it.

    I would recommend backing up to an external hard drive. My 15 month old IMac crashed and I'm in the process of recovering it. Western Digital hard drives you can press a button and it will back it up.

    Blend by me!
